What a wonderful shot! Is that a Pitts Special?
My son Robert took his check flight in an RV4 to get his private. They are pretty sporty little aircraft.

I love this picture, although the spacing feels a little off - like there's no real way to make this fit the rule of thirds. It seems a little too close to the center the way it is because the wings are so much bigger than the body, but if it were farther towards the edge I don't think it would have looked right either. May have been better as a freestudy entry, but congrats on the top 10 anyway! It's a great shot, rule of thirds or not.
